I agree with the others that perhaps it should be a bit more unified, but I
can understand that this is difficult for the Usplash as you're forced to
put it on black.
I do like the wallpapers, both of them, Viper550's a tad better, but it
could be a bit glossier.
As for the text "Xubuntu" underneath the logo: it is done well IMHO,
however, the colours don't really match, it's too light-blue...
The text in the Usplash seems OK, though perhaps better if you make it blue
letters with black shade?
Hope that helps,
